our town has been fixing up a lot of old houses. i guess the market is better for renovating than building. i'm just glad because i love older homes. they have so much character and i wonder how the people in them lived years ago. my house is over 100 years old. my kids think it's haunted because many of my electrical appliances fail and my phones never last! i love it though-it really is part of me. p.s. i've never been visited by a ghost.
